Dak Prescott provided an update on his ankle injury which has been bothering him since last offseason. Other aspects of the QB’s preparation for 2022 were therefore secondary for the duration.
However, his ankle is not a concern and the Dallas Cowboys signal caller said that it has resulted in a “completely new” feeling while he works at Cowboys’ facility.
He stated that he is “excited” about the way his leg feels and that his left shoulder has been surgically repaired. This has allowed him to focus more on next season, which has allowed him to expand his vision.
“I’m not rehabbing one thing. I’m working on my whole body. From my foot speed, it’s not just putting this down. Now it’s ‘Can I get this thing faster than they’ve ever been?’ It’s about improving on the person and player I was before the injury now and being the best player, I can be for this organization.”

Two-time Pro Bowl QB, he spoke to ESPN and said:
Since last year, Prescott had been dealing with right shoulder and calf injuries. Dallas would be best served if their QB is in great health during the offseason, and that continues through the final game of the 2022 season.
In Week Five of 2020, he sustained a season-ending ankle injury against the New York Giants. He was also diagnosed with a strained right arm when he returned to training camp in July 2021.
During Week Six of the 2021-season win over New England Patriots, the QB suffered from a right calves strain.
He was drafted in the fourth round by the team during the 2016 NFL Draft. He has played 85 games under center since then. He has thrown for 22,083 yards, 143 touchdowns and over 4,000 yards in his career.
Cowboys quarterback was seventh in passing yards, and tied for fourth in touchdown passes.
